Scripture Readings: Psalm 100, 2 Samuel 5-6, I Corinthians 6
Reflection Verses: I Corinthians 6:5-6
5 I say this to shame you. Is it possible that there is nobody among you wise enough to judge a dispute between believers? 6 But instead, one brother takes another to court—and this in front of unbelievers!
Prayer: Father God, what a sad commentary Paul is saying that Christians would rather go to a non-believer to decide an issue between them. Wouldn’t it be better if the Christians would work things out among themselves or trust a wise Christian leader to decide their issue with God’s wisdom? Emotions usually run high when people are passionate about their issues. Help me, Lord, to step back and trust You to see what is best from Your viewpoint in any issue that I am having and then resolve it in Jesus’ name. Amen.
